My interiors are spare, architectural, with a well ordered structure providing the bones. The spaces are warmed with soft inviting comfortable seating and made personal with pieces a client connects to, such as an interesting chair, artwork, arranged objects, and so on. I use natural fabrics, beautifully grained wood, and the focused use of color and pattern to enrich my interiors. I love spaces that feel relaxed, informal with a sense of being lived in. Each project maintains it’s own identity due to the tastes, needs, and possesions of each client. I enjoy traditional spaces as much as contemporary ones…you can see from my blog that my personal taste is diverse, yet there is a thread of simplicity running through all of it. All my projects include custom furniture, and cabinetry, in environmentally concious materials, that I design to suit each space. Kitchens and Bathroms are inherently a part of my overall design. Our mid-century home designed by Craig Ellwood has had a real influence on me, in the way he’s combined modern exposed structure with tactile natural materials. For many years I worked under my own name, Laura Clayton Baker Interiors, before incorporating as The Uplifters Inc in 2006. The scale of projects I’ve taken on ranges from a small bungalow in Venice, to a film production office for a firm of ten employees, to an estate in Montecito. On my web site you can see my work in Elle Decor, Martha Stewart Living, Architectural Digest, and House Beautiful.
